“Can’t Cancel Pride” was started during the COVID-19 pandemic when so many Pride events were forced to cancel around the world and has raised over $11 million for six participating LGBTQ+ charitable organizations GLAAD, The Trevor Project, National Black Justice Coalition, SAGE, Centerlink and Outright International. Now in its fourth year, the event will focus on the achievements of the past, the urgency of the present moment and the hope for the future of the LGBTQ+ community. The show will explore how leaders of the past addressed LGBTQ+ issues and provided the foundation for change; how advocates are expanding opportunities today; and how the next generation is building the groundwork for a safe, equitable and joyous future.
The event is a month-long Pride celebration throughout June. iHeartMedia radio stations will air spots encouraging listeners to tune into the livestream on June 15 and watch the event on demand.
